Biographical details

Dr Julie Schneider has a professional background in occupational therapy and prior to completing her PhD in 2006, she worked as a therapist in various acute and rehabilitation settings including low vision and blindness rehabilitation clinics.

Julie is currently a Lecturer in Work Integrated Learning (WIL) at the Faculty of Health Sciences and an Honorary Associate at the Menzies Centre for Health Policy at The University of Sydney. Julie joined the Menzies Centre in 2008 as a post-doctoral researcher working on the Blue Mountains Eye and Hearing Study. From 2010 to 2013, Julie managed an interdisciplinary partnership project funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) that focused on combined hearing and vision loss among older adults (known as Dual Sensory Impairment, DSI). Her research interests focus on: family and disability, hearing impairment and DSI among adult Australians, and improved models of service delivery.
